There have been a slew of Hawaiian bbq places opening in SF. I liked Hawaiian plate lunch type food well enough in Hawaii as a novelty, but it is not something I seek out.
Maybe I don't know what to look for. Discussing a place with not so great food, one poster wrote ...
"In particular, the macaroni salad at Lukoki is simply too sweet. The chicken katsu, which I had my first time there, was generous but greasy. Kalua pork unremarkable, with a short sour flavor, some unrendered fat, and not much else."
So what is a description of remarkable food in this category. What should I look for?
